Dinner aboard #Sojourner - the most frequent question I get about #boatlife is “what do you do in the winter?” We do what everyone else does - put on the heat, sweaters and cook a full beef tenderloin and Caesar salad dinner. That’s what. #GangplankLand#WharfDC#SWDC#MyDC
Sojourner Truth. Abolitionist, women’s rights activist, lecturer, and religious leader. Born into slavery in 1797 in Ulster County, N.Y. She escaped and became emancipated in 1827. In 1844 she left New York with only 25 cents, a new dress and the name Sojourner Truth after receiving a religious vision telling her to testify against the sins of her people making her the first African-American women to speak out against slavery. In 1851 she address a women’s rights conference in Akron, Ohio with her famous “Ain’t I A Women” speech. “I have born 13 children, and seen most all sold off into slavery, and when I cried out with a mothers grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a women!”
She is credited with inspiring African-Americans families to exit the south and migrate to Kansas after she campaigned in 1879 for a “Negro State” in the West. Also on this day in 1929 Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia.
It’s Monday 😥 so to counteract the blahs I thought I’d share my 2018 winter stack I say winter because this could all change in a couple of months😉 top is my A6 sojourner folio which has my very first A6 Hobonichi I’m using for daily creativity sketching, lettering quotes, and or watercolor play then a B6 slim caribou which has my jibun techo inside for daily planning, a b6 roadrunner for journaling, an Olive Travelers Notebook for memory keeping and on bottom an a5 turmeric with a MD notebook for scripture writing. Five notebooks may be a lot 🤔 I thought about consolidating but honestly only three are everyday carries the olive and turmeric stay home for now. I think this may be the longest post I’ve ever written too😁.
Singapore is not just a transit place, it is a place where we often come to minister over these years. Praise the Lord for good friend that we have. There are many others that we don’t get the chance to see this time.
The benefits being traveling ministers. In many parts of the worlds we met many people. Many of them not only they became friends, but also of like brothers and sisters. Awesome. Till we meet again at our next visit.
